Our Broker Proposition

Wide Risk Appetite

We offer coverages solutions for a wide range of professions both primary and excess of loss. Internationally, we underwrite insurance and reinsurance, ground up and excess layer covering several claims-made classes.

Fast Quotes

We understand time pressures that brokers face when up against renewal deadlines. Service, service, service is on our DNA. We pride ourselves on providing quotes and VRIs in minutes and hours rather than days and weeks.

Hard-To-Place Risks

We can often provide coverage solutions for hard-to-place risks where other markets cannot or will not. We are commercial in approach with each risk being underwritten on its own merits rather than 'computer says no'.

Empowered and Responsive Underwriters

Our underwriting team is experienced in dealing with a wide array of financial lines classes, professions, types of risks, wordings, territories and capacity structures and are empowered to make underwriting decisions.

Broker Portfolio Solutions

For brokers looking to move established portfolios, we can potentially offer a more flexible, responsive market, pre-agreed capacity at renewal, specific coverage extensions and administrative sub-delegation.

Capacity Support from Several Risk Carriers

Where brokers are placing a tower structure, we can often offer capacity on the primary, first and second excess layers providing brokers with a faster and more integrated placing solution.
